    Hi - this may seem trivial but it really is starting to boil my :censored: so any help appreciated

    I have an ATI9550 with s-vid out from my HTPC to my oldish Sony analogue telly using a bulk standard s-vid cable into a scart to s-vid adapter.

    The TV has the most annoying habbit of defaulting to analogue inputs (ch1-99) when it switches on and not aux inputs. So using the s-vid cable I have to dig out the remote commander to switch to the aux input on everytime. Im using the MCE 2005 remote which does TV volume and on/off functions but nothing else.

    What i really want is some advice on how what to use to switch the scart input on . ie is there an off the shelf cable/adapter for dvi (or even old vga) to s-vid scart with scart switching?

    Thanks

    Stephen

    isnt it pin 8 you need a voltage on to get it to switch? I think your time is better spent pushing a button on the remote, it's not 100% reliable on Sonys anyway. I have a customer who's waiting for his AV furniture (6 months and counting) before getting his plasma, still connected to a 32" sony, it's a total pain in the ****. Just can't get it to do this. I have put a macro on his Pronto remote to send 'AV2' after it's turned on, but you need to wait about 5 seconds after turn on or it takes no notice.
